2:00pm
do whatever it takes to make your business our business. od. helping the world keep promises. congress wrapping up a big day on capitol hill today. in the hot seat, a woman some are calling the most hated woman in america, kathleen sebelius grilled on the hill today. her testimony was distracted and at times arrogant. to some she seemed tee didn't want to be there but it was this that caught our attention. remember, when you take the stand in congress, you raise your right hand and swear to tell the truth. >> the website has never crashed. it is functional but at a very slow speed and very low reliability and has continued to function. >> that caught the attention of texas congressman pete olson who drilled holes through that claim just moments later. listen. >> the program has crashed and
2:01pm
burned at least three times and the user is still having problems. it's been down the whole time you've been testifying. the system is down at this moment. >> so we're going to dig into all that and a whole lot more from today's testimony. before we do that, we want you to join our discussion. right now we want every one of you to attempt to log into the healthcare.gov website, click an tell us what happened. we'll be monitoring your responses throughout the show and read several of them tonight on live tv. send your experiences, the good, the bad or the ugly to facebook.com/the fivefnc or tweet us, #thefive. secretary sebelius -- it was down all day. when i left it was still down. >> she didn't explain what the problems were. you think she would know and say we've trouble shot these couple
2:02pm
problems. we'll have them fixed by this time. no, it was down her entire testimony. then she was asked multiple times if she would go into the exchanges and, eric, her response was that would be illegal. by the way, it's not illegal, madam secretary, for you to go into the exchange. then she was asked if the president is to blame if the buck stops with her boss. her response was whatever. she couldn't answer any of the questions. i thought it was a terrible testimony. but again, obama using a woman in his cabinet as a human shield. >> by the way, we'll get a lot of that sound on tape in a couple of minutes. but bob, go ahead, your thoughts on sebelius' testimony today. >> all i can say is free at last, free at last, good god almighty, free at last. i'm not for this, i'm for a single payer plan. let me say this about it. if i was sebelius, i would not have gone up there today in that kind of environment. you got these guys, these republican congressmen who ask
2:03pm
all these horrible things. why go do it. but yesterday i said -- when i was i was for single payer, you said really? what about medicare, $200 billion in fraud -- >> your imitation of eric. >> sort of like that. blue cross blue shield association said in private insurance, there's $226 billion a year in waste, fraud and abuse. >> but they eat that. private companies eat the waste, fraud and abuse. >> really? >> in the government, we the taxpayer, eat that. >> fold that back up and use it for something else. >> it shows what the insurance companies are up to. >> her demeanor bothered a lot of people. >> okay, maybe i'm -- yes, i think there were some things to quibble about with her hearing, but i thought she did pretty well. i mean her tone in most of the things, especially initially, she was -- she took responsibility. she was gracious. she didn't have any moments
2:04pm
where she completely erupted. that one part is embarrassing when she says don't do this to me. that was embarrassing. the inside voice that you shouldn't use. but i didn't think it was disastrous. i would have given her a "c." that is passing, right, bob? >> i'd give her a "b" for performance. >> i'll weigh in with an "f" but go ahead, greg, your thoughts. >> one thing that annoyed me throughout this thing was, well, i think we put this thing together to show you what i'm talking about. >> secretary sebelius, thank you so very much for coming today. >> thank you, madam secretary for being here. >> madam secretary, thanks for being with us today. >> welcome, honorable secretary. >> thank you for field our questions. >> madam secretary, thanks for your time. >> thank you, madam secretary, for testifying today. >> thank you for being here with us today. >> thank you, secretary, for being here today. >> thank you for being with us today, madam secretary. >> why? why are we thanking her for
2:05pm
doing her damn job? >> it's just polite. >> no, it's not. thanking her implies that she's doing you a favor by showing up. that's what she's supposed to do. that's stupid. >> you had too much chocolate. >> i gave her an "f" for honestly not telling the truth in that first sound bite saying that the website didn't crash. here a mon damatage with some o reactions to congressional questioning. >> i chose the open enrollment date. i don't know where that quote comes from but that is not from me. sir, the way the law is written -- >> it's a yes or no. let's say that you're wrong on that. yes or no, if your wrong -- >> misinformation to the american public. >> you what? >> i don't want to give misinformation. >> i want you to research if you're wrong will you go into the exchanges? >> if i'm wrong -- >> if you can, will you? that's a yes or no. if you can, will you, ma'am? >> i will take a look at it.
2:06pm
>> that's not an answer. that's not a yes or no. >> you clearly -- whatever. yes, he is the president. he is responsible for government programs. >> so we had a real glitch. >> i thought she showed some patience against these idiotic questions these people asked. you want that guy to be the representative of the republican party? >> i want some answers, bob. >> those are all written by their staff. these guys have about as much idea -- >> she said whatever. really, whatever? 600 million bucks, whatever? >> i think the best comment on twitter was this is the new what difference does it make so now we'll just call it whatever care. that's why as much as she didn't have a meltdown or do anything horrific, i'm with you, eric, there was nothing truly factual about her testimony. she didn't come armed with numbers. now in defense of you, bob, i will agree with you, the members and their questions, i think they pushed her a little -- a little too much. i think it's very tough to go negative on a woman and that's
2:07pm
why they sent her up there. i do think at times they seemed like they were pushing her and it was very easy for her to sit there and answer. >> were you embarrassed by some of these guys? >> at times, yeah. >> you know what, they're politicians. they're clumsy, weird people on both sides. by the way, bob, she had a lot of preparation as well. i mean, look, the thing that got me when she said that they have no reliable data on enrollment, it shows you how government measures success is by not measuring success. because once -- you cannot measure something that does not exist. if you have the measurements, you see that you fail. and also she fell on her sword. she took the blame because you cannot blame god and in the cult of obama, obama is god. she cannot say it's his fault. it's harder to get out of the cult of obama than scientology. >> do you want to weigh in on this? i want to respond to bob. embarrassed by this congressman asking tough questions? i have to tell you, bob, they
2:08pm
were asking the questions that our audience wanted answers to. they were probably embodying our audience or a good portion of america. >> would you like to go to a party with some of those people? >> maybe not. but we work hard and send our tax money in and waste is the way sebelius and the rest of the bozos. >> from the chairman on down on the republican side except for ryan i have yet to see one that -- >> they put this website online october 1st and it wasn't ready and spent a lot of americans' tax money doing it. >> i'm not for it. >> should have had a nice afternoon on the hill today? >> no, but have some people with intelligence asking some questions. >> this is the thing you pointed out early are. sebelius frustration caught on a hot mike. >> i have a unanimous consent request. i'd like -- madam secretary -- >> don't do this to me. >> is she referring to her staff trying to give her something at the time?
2:09pm
i can understand that. like if the producer would be yelling something in your ear right now, which he's not. what are you doing to me? i got this. i can handle it. i do think that if you were just coming in to watch the hearing, you're dipping in and out as an american, you're listening to this, you want her to be able to answer the question. i mean she is a guest of the committee, so i think that's why they thank her. that's why they say let's try to get some real answers. but if you don't allow her to answer the question and are just firing questions -- that's why people get disgusted with politics and with republicans, frankly. >> you selectively edit that. she was talking to her staff and the staff might have said, hey, we want you to do another hearing. she said don't do that to me. >> maybe the staff member said, madam secretary, you're completely wrong. >> well, fine. but you don't know what it is but we presenting it as if it's a fact. i wouldn't put it up there as an edit. >> it's my block. >> i understand that.
2:10pm
that's my point. >> whenever something bad happens, it's always out of context, you know. that was not -- that was, believe it or not, bob, in conte context. it was, it was. i watched it live. they had three and a half years to build this thing and their excuse seems to be they need more time. that's like saying a cure for cancer is more cancer. this thing is a boondoggle. looking back in hindsight, emphasis on hind, because they're all buttheads. >> can we do this, this is kathleen sebelius apologizing, taking blame, but i've got to ask when you listen to this, does this sound genuine to you? listen. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov so let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> okay. here's my problem with that. why couldn't she have just looked into the camera and said that or looked the members in
2:11pm
the eyes and said that. when you have to read an apology like that, it does seem insincere. >> especially based on her comments last week. those arrogant comments where she said i don't work for the people that criticize me. clearly it was written into her remarks. i go back to again hillary clinton's testimony where she said the buck stops with me. but when you say i'm sorry, but, it negates the apology. she said i'm sorry, but what difference does it make. i'm shocked that she did not anticipate or her staff -- actually i'm not really surprised based on how this has been rolled out. did not anticipate the question of will you enroll on your own and have a better answer. the numbers of how many people you expect, she didn't answer the questions. she filibustered. i understand that these members have a short amount of time to get their questions in so they're jamming it all in and they looked like they were machine gun rapid firing her but she had no answers for them. that's why i think her testimony was pitiful. >> in many cases the short capacity to ask questions. if you don't mind me saying so, she made the decision to apologize, right?
2:12pm
so they write it into her speech. so at least the intent was there. >> but, bob, when you have to apologize on the five for certain things, if you do it from the heart, you don't have to write, oh, i'm really sorry. >> i'm not sure that's enough. if she says the buck stops here and i'll take full accountability for it, i think that means to leave. i need to step down. >> but the buck doesn't stop with her, the buck stops with president obama and ultimately liberalism which creates this destructive law. it's not about firing sebelius, it's about firing the left. at one point this democratic congressman from pennsylvania said that being against obama care at the start disqualifies you from criticizing this disastrous rollout. on the contrary, it just proves that everybody who was critical was right. >> everybody on the left pack your bags. >> they're the only people
2:13pm
creating laws that don't work. >> we've got to leave it there. has he been lying about his signature law from the get-go? a prominent paper gave him four pinnochios. what else has the president misled the public about? we've got a list. we want to know about your experience about logging on to healthcare.gov. so go there and then log on to our facebook page and tell us about your experience. we'll read some of those comments later in the show.
2:14pm
huh, fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. everybody knows that. well, did you know that when a tree falls in the forest and no one's around, it does make a sound? ohhh...ohhh...oh boy!
2:15pm
i'm falling. everybody look out! ahhhhh...ugh. little help here. geico. fifteen minutes could save you...well, you know. anybody?
2:16pm
2:17pm
well, president obama just wrapped up a speech preaching obama care in boston. he tried to do some damage control after an awful month of implementation. now, as we told you yesterday, millions of americans are being booted from their plans despite obama's repeated claim that that wouldn't happen. >> if you like your health care
2:18pm
plan, you'll be able to keep your health carry plan, period. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. >> well, "the washington post" fact checker just gave that whopper four pinnochio, the highest rating, also known as a lie. but this isn't the first time the president hasn't been honest about what's in his legislation. remember this? >> that may be but it's still a tax increase. >> no, that's not true, george. for us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase. >> merriam webster's dictionary. tax. a charge usually of money imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes. >> george, the fact that you looked up merriam's dictionary indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit. >> you reject that? >> i absolutely reject that notion. >> lucky for obama and maybe not
2:19pm
the rest of us, the supreme court upheld the law by ruling that it was in fact a tax. so, bob, the biggest lie of the week we talked about yesterday about how people could keep their doctor and stay on their plans, that's not proving to be true. another thing that's coming down the pike, how about all the people that work for employers that are going to be out of insurance in a year when that employer mandate delay runs out? that's going to be millions more. and people are missing that huge story. >> well, if we had single pay, you wouldn't worry about that. let me say this about obama care. the percentage of people who fit that category are minuscule compared to the whole -- >> oh, no, no. >> if the insurance companies said we won't change your plan, they could have kept their plan but the insurance companies changed their plans and then when the time they were no longer grandfathered because the insurance companies purposely and maliciously changed their plans. >> honestly. >> the grandfather status was so slim only a few people could stay on that cliff.
2:20pm
that's why everybody had to change. and the idea that somehow the government was not responsible in these cancelled plans, they created the requirements that caused the plans to be cancelled. and by the way, and the most important thing is, now that the plans are cancelled, people like you are saying, well, you know what, those plans, they weren't very good anyway. so you know better about my plan than i do. that's like when someone runs over your dog and says sorry, but, you know, he was old. >> that woman in florida, for example -- >> the bimbo you called yesterday? >> if she had a problem and went to the hospital -- >> i want to stay on the lies because there's been quite a few of them. another lie -- >> bimbo is a strong word, bob. >> not as strong as a lie. >> this would not add a dime to the deficit. in fact it was founding out this would add $180 billion to the deficit in the first ten years. another mistruth by the president. >> and it being $1.8 trillion so
2:21pm
he was tenfold off. honestly that sound bite, i forgot about stephanopolous when obama insisted obama care wasn't going to be a tax. if you didn't have obama care you wouldn't be taxed and the only way for it to become a law is for the supreme court to go around the constitution and call it a tax. >> where did you get your trillion figure from? >> $1.8 trillion. and by guess, bob, it will be at least double that amount. >> let me ask you this, bob, name one entitlement that's actually saved money ever. >> they're not meant to save money. >> this was supposed to save us money, remember? >> you don't know whether it's going to do it or not. >> another lie, the president said this would actually lower premiums by $2500. remember this? >> we estimate we can cut average family's premium by about $2500 per year. i am actually not interested in just capping premiums, i want to
2:22pm
lower premiums, by an average of $2500 per family per year. we will start by reducing premiums by as much as $2500 per family. it's time to bring down the typical family premium by $2500. it's time to bring down the costs for the entire country. >> now, premiums have gone up minimum $2500 per family and average the heritage foundation estimates they're at $16,500 per family right now. not only that but people are finding out that their deductible is going to be much higher, so that's the amount that you have to pay out of pocket up until a certain amounting until your insurance kicks in. for a lot of people that has been the shocking thing in addition to the premium increase. i agree. i think on the employer mandate, the reason they extended that for a year is because they were hearing from businesses it was unworkable, they needed more time. the individual actually is the one that ends up getting that word, the s word, by the
2:23pm
administration. i think it is quite despicable that people who were responsible, they were buying plans on the open market, they didn't have employers or unions and weren't getting a subsidy from the government, they were buying insurance on their own because they were trying to be responsible people. they are treated with such disrespect by the liberals and this law. you get four pinnochios from "the washington post," i agree. but isn't better late than never for the media to notice this? i actually think that it's actually worse. >> can you explain to me how you get a $2500 increase or whatever you say it averages when obama care is not in effect? >> bob, the provisions -- let me answer that. a lot of the provisions that you love to champion and tout are expensive. >> paternity care for men. >> there's only a couple. >> they have been in effect. they took effect right away. and so they are causing -- >> the insurance companies had to raise money that much. >> yeah, if you have a bunch of sick people in the system and
2:24pm
you know healthy people aren't going to sign up, and they're not. >> the insurance bus is coming. screw ya. >> let me ask you a really stupid question. all these people are getting thrown across their policies, right? they're hoping on november 30th this website will be working. they're hoping. let's say it's november 30th or after that, all these people o'what are they going to do? they're not going to have health insurance as of january 1st. are they going to get fined? what's the plan? is there an alternate plan for those people? >> yeah, if you don't have it november 2nd let's put in a single payer plan and get it done. >> does the government -- does our government, does obama care and obama and sebelius, do they have a plan for all the people without health care? >> i have no idea. first of all, the number of people you're talking about is vastly overstated. secondly let's see what happens. >> what if it's ten million people. and getting fined is vastly
2:25pm
overstated and bad? >> these were responsible people paying for it out of their own pocket after taxes and they're treated terribly. >> the plans fit them, it fit their needs. as you point out, it wasn't maternity care for 58-year-old men, it wasn't all of these benefits people need. they could choose what plan they liked. now they're being booted off, not able to get new health care. when they try and log on, it's more expensive. greg, i'm convinced we ain't seen nothing yet. when this employer mandate finally expires, and i bet a bunch of employers have started to cut a bunch of people. >> well, it's a testament to your achievement that it's so bad that you must trick people into it. bob, you're right. it's about chaos becoming order. and that order is the single y payer system. that's why nobody on the left really cares. they enjoy this destruction. they think it's great. by the way, when you saw the audience today in boston, they
2:26pm
were applauding a disaster. imagine if obama care was a success, it would have been a scene from calligula. >> how do you know that this is going to be disastrous? we don't know yet. do you really know? >> i do. >> you read your crystal ball? >> it's already proving to be a disaster. >> i know we've got to go, but there's gold, silver -- platinum, sold, silver and bronze plans. as you go down the ladder, your deductibles and co-pays explode. they go from a couple thousand up to some cases 6,000, $7,000. >> if everybody was in the exchanges it would be lower than that. >> when they realize that, it's no good. >> that's the problem, bob, it took years and millions of dollars to get people to sign up in massachusetts that had the lowest uninsured rate to begin with. >> it's working in massachusetts now, though, right? >> not that great. >> to bob's pointing, president
2:27pm
obama's mantra was this is never going to be easy. revolution never is. it's why fundamental change means that it can be hard, which essentially excuses the debt that occurred in the 20th century. it's all about revolution, and revolution is hard. >> coming up -- sorry, bob. sean penn slams the tea party and thinks ted cruz should be institutionalized. perhaps a compliment to cruz considering the source. we'll show you that tape. we want to know about your experience logging on to healthcare.gov. test out the site and swing over to our facebook page. tell us how it went for you. or if your employer dropped your coverage, i'd like to know that personally. >> personally, really? >> yeah. >> millions of people like that. you'll be overwhelmed. welcome back. how is everything?

2:32pm
sean penn was on a local cable access program recently, interviewed by a mangy kitten, where he said that the tea party were rubes and ted cruz should be institutionalized. behold the bile. >> let's go to the tea party influence on congress. i think they have -- there's a mental health problem in congress. this would be solved by committing them by executive order, i think, because these are american brothers and sisters. we shouldn't be criticizing them, attacking them. this is a cry for help. >> commit people like ted cruz? >> he's my american brother. we should take care of him. he's in trouble. >> have him committed? >> i think it's a good idea. >> but moments later, this furious self tanner admonishes americans for saying nasty things about each other.
2:33pm
>> between an uneducated people and people like ted cruz and their party, it's a poisonous thing. here's this country where we have it all. we have it all to make it great and we find ways of self destructing. and by saying nasty things about each other and being crazy. >> wow, that's either amnesia or great cocaine. i put money on the coke. but he's kidding. and this is humor among the left. the tea party, they're so stupid. the takeaway is how desperate penn has become to maintain his cool cred in hollywood. his pronounces are so mundane that he shares dna with sheep. it's so hopelessly boring. how hilarious is it that the tea party is edgier than sean penn? they're fighting the man. he's just spooning him.
2:34pm
and it wreaks of distress from an aging bad boy who's just gone bad in a spoiled lettuce sort of way. no wonder he od'ed on bronzer. hollywood is home to fake rebels who bash americans to preserve their status with a dollop of phony concern to match their lack of depth. the urge to limit intrusive government is considered insane and amassive crippling debt isn't. it's more a sign of insanity than anything. i'd never suggest penn be committed, for he already lives in hollywood. >> can you od on self tanner? >> yes, you can. remember the new jersey mom? >> can you or not? we want to know. >> it's frightening. dana, what is it about the principle like limited government that freaks out hollywood? don't you think that that's like the ultimate rebellious stance. like you fighting this giant blob of government, which is something that they actually embrace? >> it's strange because i think that he actually really believes in some of the things that he's
2:35pm
saying, except when the tax man comes to them, they always try to find another way to get around it. if the tax man is coming to provide them credits, like tax credits in order to make movies somewhere, fine. you know what, the first thing that he would do is he'd leave america in a second to go film a movie if it was -- if they were going to pay him. the mental health problem seems to me to be -- to rest with him. and ted cruz, thank goodness he's a good sport because if you want to make fun of the tea party, you've got to say something about ted cruz and you can get on television. >> ted cruz or sean penn who hangs out with castro, morales and chavez, three leftist dictators. i'll take ted cruz. remember bon jovi. he was for socialized everything and we find out that he had a farm with a few beans on it so he could get the tax credit. they're all the same until it's their money. >> all the same. >> i'm outraged, the attack on
2:36pm
my man, teddy cruz. i think penn -- first of all, i will say this about cruz. the guy is obviously very smart, no question about that. of course coming from me that's saying something. but don't attack teddy. he's got -- he's working hard for this ticket. >> isn't it weird how people who play rebels on film are such mindless followers in life. >> wait, spigoli was a great role for him to play. >> that was his best role. >> it's a little projection. he's projecting his own insecurities about not being very stable on ted cruz. but again, where's the courage by piers morgan to actually challenge him on what the tea party stands for. ask penn to do something besides just name call. >> wait, that was piers morgan? >> that was piers morgan. >> oh, oh, i haven't seen him in
2:37pm
years. but neither has america. >> shouldn't he have asked the question, what about them is so threatening. can you actually it rate for us what the tea party stands for. he couldn't. >> i just watched sean penn's last movie called "this must be the place." might be the worst movie i've ever seen. just look at it for five minutes and it will make you throw up. the 2014 winter olympic games are in russia in less than 100 days away. i'm counting. there's bob. and the best athlete to test out some events. stay tuned for the olympic feed of trying to get bob to be active. so ally nk has a raise your rate cd that wothat's correct.a rate. cause i'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that? uh, mark? go get help! i have my reasons. look, you don't have to feel trapped
2:38pm
with our raise your rate cd. if our rate on this cd goes up, yours can too. oh that sounds nice. don't feel trapped with the ally raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. that would be my daughter -- hi dad. she's a dietitian. and back when i wasn't eating right, she got me drinking boost. it's got a great taste, and it helps give me the nutrition i was missing. helping me stay more like me. [ female announcer ] boost complete nutritional drink has 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d to support strong bones and 10 grams of protein to help maintain muscle. all with a delicious taste. grandpa! [ female announcer ] stay strong, stay active with boost.
2:39pm
